10 weeks post, I'm going to touch up at 13 weeks.
I think about a month? Idk. I keep losing track lol
Im 5 days post relaxer, I couldn't take it anymore and finally got a trim next relaxer is scheduled in 11 weeks 2 days
I am 5 weeks post relaxer. Depending on the amount of new growth I have another 5-7 weeks until my next touch up.
Hey everyone, another question; how soon after a relaxer would you say its okay/a good idea to do a heavy protein treatment (e.g. Dudleys drc 28, nexxus emergencee, aphogee 2 step etc)?
@Prisangela love your hair and trim!
@outspokenwallflower I usually wait a week or two. No set time really.
I'm about an hour post. Dc'ing now.
I'll post pics on Fotki soon.
I do a midstep protein treatment right after relaxing usually aphogee two step if I have the time, if not 2 minute keratin
16 weeks post relaxer and only 1 week to go.
7 weeks post. I originally planned to stretch for 4 to 6 months, but I left my roots considerably more under-processed than my length. I think I'll stretch for 12 weeks, and once the length and roots are similar I'll be able to have longer stretches.
1 week post and 7 weeks to go.
2 weeks post and 6 weeks to go!
2 days post, 17 more to go.
If it's a heavy protein I wouldn't even consider using it before two weeks post and I normally wait quite a bit longer. The medium strength protein used at the point of relaxer is fine for me.
Just finished relaxing, 12/13 weeks really is the sweet spot for me. I had a lot of NG but manageable.
Just conditioning now. I’m going to do a fairly heavy moisture and seal then flexi rod.
I am 8 weeks post relaxer. Will relax in 4 weeks if I fix this breakage problem from protein overload
GL sis. Keep babying your hair, you can do it. When I need extra moisture, I add a tbsp of salt and sometimes a few squirts of honey into my DC. Salt makes my hair feel like butter!
Thx I will try this on my next DC day.
3 weeks post, 5 weeks to go
May I ask why? Don't know if I'm doing something wrong.
I just don't think it's necessary for me. I personally feel that the strong proteins are just a bit too strong for me to use at that point in a relaxer process, the mid strength proteins are fine and do the job.
Like anything though, if it works for you continue to do it. If it's not broke and all that...
17 weeks post! Boxbraids are still in! It's time for me to redo the perimeter! I am hoping to retain 3" before relaxing at 21 weeks 3/29.
9 weeks post and sitting here with 4 day pre relaxer twists on my head. #ugh
Eta: half day post relaxer
Same routine. Same products.
